Custom Nursery Closet

Now that the nursery is done I want to take pictures to post here but I haven't yet gotten around to it yet so I figured I would post the closet instead since that's all I have done.  I will say I searched Pinterest up and down trying to find a custom closet that wasn't super expensive to make.  It took a long time but I finally found one I liked.  I took inspiration from "David + Jen" 's nursery.  I would for sure take a look closely at how did they it.  We did not, and afterwards I wished I would because then I would have found out why their closet turned out with much bigger shelves than ours. (dang it!)
(They used two shelving units and cut one of them up for shelves)

I took pictures from both sides.  Jeff had a great idea to only have one shelf on one side so we could fit the bigger items like the stroller and I would say it turned out wonderfully.  We also have plenty of room for lots of hanging items.  You can see I barely have one bar filled up let alone all three.
So, there it is! A closet already full of diapers!

What we bought:
EXPEDIT shelving unit 1 
(white, 1x5)    - LINK
LACK shelf x3 - LINK
EKBY STILIG bracket x6 - LINK
Metal Bars (from Lowes0 x3
Threshold Cubes (Target) x4


  1. Thank you for sharing! Very smart to use a closet IN a closet!

  2. It still looks really good in there though!! I'm Jen from David+Jen, found you via a link back. My husband is way better at project type things and he had the idea to cut up one b/c it would be cheaper than getting other wood and finishing it. We love the expedit shelving unit still though!
